Summary
  • Digital file from scanned print
  • Next is 113 South Cook--a small grocery store operated by 2 brothers from Palatine--the Wente Bros. Later it was Wente and Adams, then Wente and Klepper. Now it is Ray's Barber Shop. 117 South Cook St. Served as the Post Office from 1919 until 1929 with Joseph Robertson, Postmaster. The building was owned by George Hager and Henry Lageschulte. 119 South Cook once stood where the State Bank was, and it faced north at Park Ave. (then called R.R. St). It was built in the late 1850's and it housed Sodt's General Store. It was moved to this location in 1916. It housed many stores--Burandt's Ice Cream and Candies, later Charley Miller's Ice Cream. In 1927 Herman Wente purchased the building and moved into the second floor with his 2 children, Orville and Ardith. They lived here until 1940 when Herman built a new house at 228 West Lincoln Ave. Herman rented the first floor to the Royal Blue Store in 1927. Later Tommy and Marion Johnson ran the Town Shop for many years. (Long time employee was Harry Munsing.) Now--Patti Anne's Town Shop and Naidi Gift Store. Photo 5-1-1989
